There’s some amazing stuff taking place in Copenhagen at the climate talks this week. The aviation industry and tourism industry are being taken on by civil society, particularly from developing countries. Here are some of the visual activists at work this week.

Climate Change – Global Warning?

Posted by deborahmclaren on December 8, 2009

I’m pasting in this information from Ron Mader. He’s calling for direct action.

…from world leaders on climate change was published today by 56 newspapers around the world in 20 languages. (Thank, C!)

Great, right? Sorta. What would have been cooler (sorry, bad pun) would be if the project had been developed with openness and transparency. The Guardian has a blog which accepts comments, but that’s a nice touch after the fact. For this to be a bigger wow – in terms of making use of current technologies and putting into practice collaborative work, it would be good to see process. Use Web 2.0: Make it a wiki. If you want to limit the writers, that’s fine, but make the process open.

Calling for direct action, here’s your turn! We are seeking climate art, reports, posters in World Climate, a group on Flickr.
